February Birthstone Amethyst
FEBRUARY BIRTHSTONE AMETHYST
If you, or someone you know has a February birthday, then you already know this, but ...People born in February are quirky!
They tend to be a bit sensitive and can be extraordinarily talented.
And if you believe the history of fortune telling, February is believed to be the month that produces geniuses.
Thing is though, being 'genius' in something can lead to forgetting to keep on top of day to day things and this can lead to people thinking that they're an airhead..
Sometimes even they can start to believe it themselves in a moment of self doubt.
It's not difficult to believe then, that February Birthday ladies tend to be bored by ordinary gifts.
If you want a gift for someone with a February Birthday that she'll love, consider something that is particularly meaningful to her, like the February birthstone of Amethyst.
Amethyst is a well known, much loved gem.
PURPLE LOVERS worldwide agree!
